History proves community pharmacy is far from extinction
from By Greg L. Alston
I read with great interest a recent blog post titled, "Is community pharmacy a dying profession?" While the article laments the loss of control of our profession to third-party actors, the storm of responses is even more telling. The passion raised by multiple respondents calls for everything from the development of a national union to altering the underlying economics of the drug industry. One of the benefits of having gray hair is that I have lived long enough to see this same question asked for 40-plus years, and the angst level generated in 1977 is not much different from what pharmacists are feeling now.
